Some seven weeks ago I as asked to be responsible for the course in Philosophy of science and health care ethics in the master program Pre-Hospital Critical Care (PHCC), which is to be offered by the University of Stavanger's unit for continuing education, UiS EVU. I accepted - and on Monday 19th of May I attended an information meeting at UiS EVU.
My course will in the first round be offered autumn 2015 and spring 2016, and amount to 10 credits (1/6 of a full year's credits). It will largely be modelled after the master course in Philosophy of science and ethics that I have been giving autumn 2012 and autumn 2013 at UiS' Department of health studies (as part of the department's master in health science).
The PHCC master program, which is pending approval by the UiS board in June, is initiated and initially funded by Norsk Luftambulanse [Norwegian Air Ambulance]. New students will likely be admitted every second year starting this autumn.
